Why it's important for hydration

Magnesium helps the intracellular transport of sodium and potassium throughout your cells, meaning you’ll get more out of your electrolytes with it in your diet.

Why it's important for overall health

Over 50% of Americans are magnesium deficient.

Every cell in your body needs it to function. More than 300 nerve impulses enzymatic reactions require magnesium as a cofactor.

Magnesium helps regulate your blood sugar levels. 48% of people with type 2 diabetes have low levels of magnesium in their blood.

Your body needs 10-20% more magnesium while exercising than when you’re at rest.

Low levels of magnesium are also linked to an increased risk of depression.
